Amazing Week 
Jose has been a taxi driver for over 30 years. As he shared the history of Diriomo, I can see the sadness in his eyes. He recounted what it was like growing up in a city known for black magic and witchcraft. He said, "We just got caught up in it. As a teen I went deeper and deeper into spells, sacrifices, and abuse. I watched the way this darkness changed my city into one of  prostitution, drugs, and corruption.  About 30 years ago hundreds of Americans came and shared their testimonies of God. Many of us grabbed onto the hope they gave us and were delivered and saved  from the depths of hell.

As we continued to talk with Jose and share Scripture with him we begin to hear discrepancies in his beliefs about Christianity.  He was confused as to why we placed such emphasis on Scripture.  By the time we read Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death and the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."  Jose was weeping. He said, "Now I understand the Truth.  I haven't been a Christian these past 30 years, I have been involved with a Cult."  We lead Jose in a simple life changing prayer that day. We believe he's going to be instrumental in reaching out to his friends who have been similarly deceived. 

Each day our team divided into 6 smaller teams. Two Americans and a Nicaraguan  translator.  We canvased hundreds of homes sharing the Gospel and we were led to pray with many.  Several evenings we hosted outreaches to bless the children and we saw a huge number of children respond to the Gospel.  The people of Diriomo were so receptive!  Each evening, the debrief time sounded like a chapter out of the New Testament, conversions, healings, dangerous adventures and divine appointments!   

Thank you for your prayers... your prayers paved the way for our team! Now, let's pray together for the church launching team as they follow-up on all those that gave their lives to Christ.   And, please pray for our friend Jose.  Pray that the Lord will use this 62 year old new believer to reclaim his city for Christ!
